Sagna fined over so­cial me­dia post

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

Manch­ester City de­fender Bacary Sagna was fined 40,000 pounds (about R668 227,500) yes­ter­day and warned about his future con­duct after a post on so­cial me­dia that ap­peared to ac­cuse a ref­eree of bias. The French in­ter­na­tional was charged with mis­con­duct by the FA for his “10 against 12... but still fight­ing and win­ning as a team” In­sta­gram post after City beat Burn­ley 2-1 in the Pre­mier League on Jan­uary 2. Ref­eree Lee Ma­son sent off City mid­fielder Fer­nand­inho in the 32nd minute and the FA al­leged that French­man Sagna’s com­ment, which was later deleted, ques­tioned the of­fi­cial’s in­tegrity. – Reuters/ ANA
